Badge Sale Speculation

Last year the badges went up in May I believe. Is there any word if that schedule is being kept to again or if we might expect them in September as per year one?

    According to the PAX spreadsheet, it was July for (2015), September for (2016), and then May for (2017). 3 day passes sold out in ~1.33 hours,3.5 days, and 165 days respectively. If you were to average them together, then you would have roughly 56 days to grab a 3 day pass before they sell out. (The variance is incredibly large, so please take this with a grain of salt.) Not a lot of data to go off of, but personally I would place my bet for July on the early side and September at the late side of things. Even if you missed out on a 3 day pass, individual day passes took months to sell out or didn't sell out at all for all 3 years so if you were just checking the PAX Forums/Reddit/Twitter occasionally you could easily get passes for all the days without signing up for updates and such.

    I think the tickets going up in May was an anomaly.

    I'm not sure if they will be expanding into more of the venue again this year, thus providing more tickets as has been the case. Either way, I would say there is a good chance of 3 day passes being available for at least a month.
